We are very sorry but we have taken the decision to cancel tonight’s classes. The weather conditions are very severe, and travel is not recommended. The safest thing to do is cancel the classes. Keep warm and keep practising the fiddle! We will see you again next week.
We are now taking bookings for the Spring Half-Term which runs from Weds 21st February. There will be five weeks of tuition, but as we can’t use the school on Weds 21st March, these classes will be held on Weds 28th March instead. We are hoping to organise a social event on Weds 21st March, which will be run on a drop-in basis, but won’t be included in the course.
Stewart and Grace have been delighted with the take-up of the places and the response of the students from the first half-term. We have taken on board everybody’s feedback and will be making slight changes to the format as we go forwards. There have been many requests for more time spent on exercises and less on learning new tunes and they are very happy to oblige! So the Technique and Style classes will use the same repertoire for this half-term, with the exercises and techniques taught in the first class being used to support the learning of the tune and the stylistic considerations of the second class.
There are limited spaces left in both ability levels at the moment, so do get in touch to reserve your place. The cost for the classes is £80 for five weeks of two classes per evening, or £45 for one class per evening (either Technique or Style).
Five week course (21st Feb – 28th Mar 2018. No classes on Weds 21st Mar)
Class 1 – Technque: 18:30 – 19:45
Class 2 – Style: 20:00 – 21:15

£80 for both classes each week, for five weeks
£45 for one class per week (Technique or Style)

I can't believe it's Week 5 and the end of the current tunes. Thank you all so much for the support during our first Virtual NEFS block, and we were delighted to have so many new folks sign up. We hope you've enjoyed it!
We are planning another Virtual NEFS block starting on Weds 10th June, with all the materials available via the website. Worksheets, audio files and in-depth video tutorials for the tunes - which don't just teach the tune by the phrase using motifs and other shortcuts, but look at the bowing patterns, the ornaments and how to get the groove into the music. Excellent quality tuition, now available online! ... See MoreSee Less
